Cynthia Ona Innis‘ paintings are all about beauty and immersion, our eyes led through a molecular landscape, the images a mix of biological and pharmaceutical forms, pills, floating in an exotic environment. Her work is subtle and rich, the shapes suggestive, the pictorial narrative coming out of happenstance. Here’s what Innis has to say about her work:
The work continues to be an investigation of forms under transformation. Exposing a transitional pivot—a moment of exchange as one thing becomes another. The surging biomorphic instances suggest a physical and botanical reference amidst an environment also caught in flux. Growth stages in plant and animal forms interest me–considering the seasons in my environment, I examine the wet/dry, sexual/reproductive, stiff/limp/buoyant, fresh/spent, thriving and fragile properties of the body and nature through abstraction. Time and movement are explored through a narrative created with drawing, paint and collage.
The materials include the use of satin, velvet and vinyl fabrics layered with ink and acrylic paint on canvas, wood panel and paper with a strong emphasis on line.
Whatever, whichever way you look at them, see them or think about them you have to say they’re beautiful works. Well I say that.
